Paasch writes, "Shared parenting is a flexible option that gives judges wide latitude in ordering parenting time arrangements, while still allowing judges to protect victims of abuse, when required. It is the modern, responsible solution today’s families and children need from the family court system." Read the full op-ed here.

NPO Executive Director Petra Maxwell penned a letter to the editor appearing in the October 12, 2018 edition of the Columbus Dispatch (Ohio):

"NPO has worked tirelessly to promote true shared parenting of children when parents live apart.

"The women leaders of NPO want to make clear that this issue is not “boys vs. girls” or “moms vs. dads.” To try to cast it as a skirmish in the gender wars is to diminish its significance and ultimately hurts children, which no reasonable person would want."
